11:00am
we ask ed what did nelson mandea teach you. thank you for watching. here comes gretchen. >> hi everyone. this is "the real story". a smoking gun proving the administration new way back in july that the obama care website for small businesses would not be ready for december first. kept it all a secret. the bombshell revelation includes this e-mail. i've escalated your concerns regarding the shop employee application not being completed
11:01am
until 10/13/15. if this is late we have to announce we are late with a deliverrable which means the secretary will have to announce. here is the reaction from the house energy and commerce chair. we see more and more evidence that the administration and the signature health care law. the announcement only came last week. what do you make of the bombshell revelations? >> these e-mails show pattern that has been happening throughout the obama care
11:02am
scandal at this point. this goes back to may that there were problems and delays tests thinking missed and major contracts that hadn't been let out and more that there wasn't anyone really in charge. so this administration the white house was so determined to come out with this obama care on october 1st regardless of these problems. >> as each new revelation comes out. let me ask you this, does it make it a bigger problem for is he safe so to speak. does he came out and said i'm going to make she's fixes and i didn't know any of this.
11:03am
problems are so big and so multiple they are still having to fix it. the fixes go a long way. secondly, you know this is a case where the president and democrats put their faith in 1/7th of our nation's economy. what is coming clear of the e-mails things where the system is breaking down eternally controls there wasn't somebody in charge. >> the question is who was in charge and what did the president know. cms issued this statement to fox news. it reads in part:what does that
11:04am
say to you? obviously they are trying to keep it to the top of cms and ultimately the administration. >> when you release e-mails it is part of the administration. the facts are they are delaying the small business exchain program. the facts are there are so many problems still in the system that people are having trouble signing up. the facts are people are losing their insurance because of obama care and the facts are that people who have a sick child and want to hold on to specialized medicine or doctors won't be able to. those are the big facts that affect people's lives.
11:05am
folks are getting a taste of their own obama care members. they are having trouble signing up. they are asking for a delay to extend their open rollment. do they deserve better treatment than the rest of us? >> there was the issue they tried to get a carve out over that. the dc link was supposed to be one of the better programs over that. it shows you the systemic level of problems even though the president keeps saying that things are supposed to be fixed. >> have a great weekend thank you so much. >> we want to hear from you. send us your thoughts on the e-mail trail or the request to

11:07am
lead yet. it is unclear almost a month after she disappeared if she lev left willingly. >> we are concerned for her safety. she is not out there alone. she has someone helping her whether that be a friend or what we fear is a faux. getting a letter in a case like this is almost a problem. >> hopefully will is hope here. police are releasing new pictures today. >> we can show them to you too. one is a necklace that they believe she might be waeearing. they say she has no money at all. the police are asking for
11:08am
abigail to send another letter to her family like the first juan aone and for the public to keep their eyes open. >> look at your neighbor, look at the girl's next store or your church. is there somebody that you haven't even here before. i think elizabeth smart indicated that she was seen in a library and police came up to her. we need the public's help. >> it is important to note that abigail hernandez did have a cell phone with her when she went missing. >> thank you so much for that update trace. >> you are looking live right

11:10am
you doctor. >> wonderful to be here gretchen. thank you so much. when you mourn the passing of mandela, you talk about the life in which he lived. you mentioned something about abunta and the way in which he governed and brought back pride. it was african philosophy. it is sometimes known by another name. that i'm defined by my relationship with other people. in typical ways i think therefore i am. it is i belong therefore i am. he was extraordinary in that he would make every decision based on that idea. he unified people and gave an ability back to those who had been so oppressed. is there a we will see
11:11am
that kind of a leader in that culture again? >> i'm from africa and it is s e seldom that we hear good stories from africa. i'm deeply concerned for my country and we can stop and reflect deeply. and hopefully this new generation that is growing up will look at this and say this is indeed the way to do it. celebrating the live in which he lived and what he gave back. thank you so much for your thoughts today thank you. >> thank you. it is a joy. >> well the white house, changing the story about the president's uncle and whether or not he actually knew him and
11:12am
then it was this. >> folks looked at the record including the president's book. there was no evidence that he had met. he in fact had met him and he stayed with him for a brief period of time until the president's apartment was ready. >> our panel picks it apart. plus eye opening new research between concussions and altitude. a wicked ice storm crippling the nation's midsection. we'll have the latest on its path. right back. >> yesterday we were at nearly 80 degrees. it is surprising. of back pain... and a choice. take up to 4 advil in a day or 2 aleve for all day relief.

11:17am
referred to earlier we have these big agencies some of which are out dated and not designed properly. >> joining me now allen combs and mike gallagher. i found that statement from the president interesting because first of all he says his management style. >> the fact that the president is not a micromanager he is up fixing my website. he's an it guy. you criticize him for that.

11:21am
and it makes me wonder about other political hot potatoes. >> why would he not admit that he knew him? >> he was never asked. you jump on something like this which gives you less credibility when there are other issues that matter. >> if you criticize him for every little minor thing. >> you know how to criticize each other i know that but you are still friends. >> in the meantime we are tracking a dangerous storm now moving across the country. plus, his most recent adventure propelling down a tall building this morning. bad dog you won't believe what this pooch is about to do. >> also are you planning on
